The perception of a conspiracy against Jacob Zuma has not only affected the ANC but also state departments, political analyst Aubrey Matshiqi said yesterday.
Speaking at a seminar on the state of the criminal justice system, held by the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation (CSVR), Matshiqi said the allegations surrounding Zuma had also affected the country's criminal justice system.
"Conspiracy is also one of the main drivers of the ANC succession battle . however, there is no evidence to support this conspiracy.
"What one should look at is the impact that this perception of conspiracy has on political conduct." - Sapa
